A ballistic wall was recently installed in the lobby of the Jamestown Police Department. Funding for the project came from several local organizations including, Allied Alarm Services, Inc., Chautauqua Patrons Insurance Company, Lynn Development Group and Shults Auto Group.
Troy Barber, an engineer with Dawson Doors, designed the wall. The demolition of the previous wall and installation of the new wall and bulletproof glass was completed by D & S Glass.
According to Chief Harry Snellings, this is just another step in protecting our law enforcement officials.
“I just want to thank all of the organizations and individuals who came together to make this project a reality,” Snellings said.
In addition to the organizations who donated money for the project, Dawson Doors and D & S glass provided the labor and the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation served as a depository for the money secured.
